Putting the 'Super' in Liberal

The term "super liberal" is not one commonly used in economic circles, but it seems to capture the spirit of extreme liberal ideologies. These ideologies often promote a hands-off approach from the government and emphasize the role of the market in driving economic growth. However, Putin's recent actions have shown that even the most ardent believers in liberal economics can be brought down with a well-timed blow.

A Clash of Ideologies

In contrast, liberal economics champions the idea of free and unrestricted markets, where individuals are given the freedom to pursue their own economic goals. This clash of ideologies has created a perfect storm, with Putin determined to demonstrate the flaws of liberal economics, regardless of the consequences.

The Domino Effect

Lessons from Across the Pond

As Americans look on at the chaos unfolding in Russia, there are lessons to be learned. The American Dream, often seen as the epitome of individual success and upward mobility, is built on a foundation of capitalism. While capitalism has its critics, it has also been the driving force behind the unparalleled economic growth in the United States.

The Aftermath

As Russia scrambles to stabilize its economy, there are no easy solutions. Putin's actions have undoubtedly left a mark on the Russian psyche, much like the scars of the Great Recession still linger in the minds of Americans. The road to recovery will be long and arduous, but it is not impossible.

In the words of Winston Churchill, "To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often." Only time will tell if this tumultuous experience will spark meaningful change in economic ideologies around the world. But for now, one thing is clear: Putin's pummeling of 'super liberal' economics has left them in a rubble, and it's up to us to learn from the rubble and rebuild with greater wisdom.
